Creating a vision on future cities and urban mobility
In urban environments, the systems of mobility guide the processes of labor, resources, and capital. Cities are the nodes in a global network of multiple mobility modes. Their infrastructure not just provide us with essential elements of our daily life, but also impact the global geopolitical, financial and cultural sphere. As our urban populations continues to grow, those mobility infrastructure needs to adopt to new challenges.
